Black Hawk

Last Friday a Black Hawk came to the high school by our house and landed on the football field. I took Garret over to watch. We missed it landing, but we saw it fly right over our house. We went over the football field and got to walk out and look inside the helicopter. Then we stayed and watched it take off. It took off and hovered (see picture), then flew off, took a sharp bank turn, and flew over the field again. I had forgotten my camera, but there were some other people sitting in the bleachers by my with their camera. I asked them if they would email me a picture and they did. Isn't that nice. So now you get to see it on my blog.

More Garretisms

This kid cracks me up. I'm sure that he is going to grow up to be the class clown. He just has a knack for making people laugh. Here are two of his latest.

He was downstairs with Kirt and Kirt said that he had to go upstairs because he had to go to the bathroom. Garret asked "You wearing big boy underwear?"

Kirt and Garret were laying on our bed watching TV one night. Kirt tooted and Garret said "I got to go turn on the light so I can see your fart dad."

Shut you piehole

Kirt was just putting Garret to bed. Katie was being noisy in the other room and Garret yelled out "Katie, shut your piehole". Isn't that a beautiful expression that he has learned from his big brother?

Tanner playing basketball

Here's a few shots of Tanner playing basketball. He played his first year of AAU basketball and the competition was much more intense. They have easily won all their games in the years past, but this year they ended up 7th of 17 teams. They improved a lot throughout the year, but we were pretty worried at first. Tanner's team played in a league with Jon Stockon's son (former Utah Jazz player) and Jon Stockon was the coach. Tanner'a team played them two times. The first time Tanner took his Utah Jazz hat and asked Jon Stockon to autograph it. He said that he doesn't give autographs out when he is with his family, but that he would shake Tanner's hand and told him that he played a good game. There is a picture of Jon Stockon sitting on the the bench. Tanner thought it was pretty cool.

I love kids in overalls

Trip to Boise

Katie took this picture of Brandon and Kathleen when the were here for Christmas. I just thought it was really cute.



Last weekend the kids and I decided to drive down to Boise to see my brother Ryan and his family. Kirt was in Hawaii speaking at a seminar. He was there during the tsunami. Luckily all was well and the tsunami came and went with no damage. While in Boise we went to Ryan's ward's dinner and dessert auction. Tanner won a yummy chocolate cake. I got to play volleyball with Angela. We went to the zoo. It was lots of fun to visit them.

Katie's 6th Birthday

We had birthday cinnamon rolls instead of cake for Katie's birthday this year.

For her birthday Katie and her friend Olivia went and got their fingernails and toenails painted. They got to sit in these cute little pedicure chairs. Katie also got a new bike for her birthday. She is super fast on it.

Tanner's 10th Birthday

I can't believe that I have a kid who is a decade old. We had pretty laid back birthday's this year. I told my kids when they were little that they could have friend birthday parties on their 4th, 8th, 12th and 16th birthdays. So this was not a friend year. We had a fun family outing though. We went and saw the movie Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Lightening Thief and went to dinner at Red Robin. We had cake and icecream for Tanner's birthday at Jon and Michelle's. I forgot to bring candles so hence the #1 candle on the cake because it was the only one they had. Jessy and Will were in town too. For Tanner's birthday, we got him an electric skateboard. It is as much for him as it is for Kirt. It is awesome to ride.
